Work at Home Jobs in Affiliate Marketing


There are many different reasons that people decide they want to make money with work at home jobs:

* New moms are reticent to leave their newborns with baby sitters or strangers in order to go back to work – who can blame them?

* People want to “retire in style”, making use of their newfound spare time in retirement by having passive income streams

* Over-stressed people sometimes just need a break from the rat-race, yet an ongoing income remains a must to maintain

* Disabled folks are unable to make the commute, but are capable of contributing a lot of value using their computer

* Displaced workers and the unemployed are in need of finding a way to make ends meet

* With today’s high gas prices and child care, driving across town chews up most of the after-tax income we’re able to make, making a regular job even less attractive than usual

* Still others simply want to make more money, save for the future, pay off cars and homes, ditch the boss and take back control of their life, work whenever they feel like it and enjoy the freedom of working from their own home office.

Whatever the impetus for being interested in work at home jobs, more people than ever are seeking ways to achieve this modern-day nirvana. More and more, people are turning to work from home jobs on the Internet, since most of us now have high-speed DSL or equivalents available.

Now, one must be adequately prepared before striking out to make money on the Internet. There are a bunch of survey scams and questionable money-making schemes to be aware of and steer clear of out there. These survey scams typically ask you to pay them some sign-up fee, then take surveys to supposedly make money. Most of these so-called work at home jobs are scams designed to take your money, and you end up making no money at all, so be very cautious about such schemes.

Fortunately, there are also legitimate ways to make good to great money over the Internet working from home today, in what’s called “affiliate marketing”. Basically, you sign up as an “affiliate”, and you market other people’s existing products online, and you get paid a healthy commission for each sale you make. It’s as simple as that – your work at home job is selling other people’s existing products as an affiliate.

The checks come every two weeks – like clockwork. This is a huge and growing business today, due to the rapid growth of “digital goods” and the vastness of the Internet. We live today in the marvelous digital information dot-com age of the Internet, where technology advances on every front have changed our way of life, how we are entertained, how products are bought and sold, and how information is located and consumed – digitally at the speed of thought and light.

As a result, our world economy is now in transition. It is transforming from an industrial age to that of an Information Society. This information society is rapidly taking shape before our very eyes today. Among these changes is the massive growth of digital information products, the majority of which are bought and sold over the Internet.

Digital technologies make it easier and cheaper to access, store and transmit information – and to buy it and sell it! The beauty of digital products is that there are no physical goods to purchase, inventory and transport. This drastically reduces a business’ operating costs, creating an incredibly profitable business engine. And should we choose to sell non-digital, more traditional hard goods, the suppliers of these hard goods will just drop ship them for us, so we can certainly sell them online, too.

Digital information, transformed into economic and social value, offers huge opportunities for the development of new products and services. Information is the key resource of our new digital economy.

For thousands of years, people have been trying to capture and convey the value of what they’ve learned and know, which began with printed books. Now, anyone with the right tools and some basic online marketing knowledge can reach out and touch a large part of the rest of our world – electronically!

This digital information is today conveyed as what are commonly known as “e-books” – electronic online books, and software products of various kinds. These digital goods are simply downloaded to a customer’s PC, making these digital transactions entirely automated and hands-free. This makes them extremely attractive, since there’s absolutely no human intervention required once things are set up and the sales processes are taking place online.

There are an estimated 729 million people using the Internet today (287 million English speaking). That number continues to grow steadily as more of the earth’s population gains online access and more young people grow up in the only world they’ve ever known – a digital world. The digital age is here to stay, and the marketplace is huge and still growing.

There are thousands of people making huge six-figure incomes, working at home just part-time, making amazing money over the Internet. You could be one them, through Internet affiliate marketing. Powerful Internet marketing techniques are available today that provide you with an opportunity of a lifetime – the ability to take control of your own finances and live the life you were meant to have, working at home and selling products and services over the Internet – your own and others’.

As a successful executive familiar with what it takes to compete effectively and make money, you’ll find my point of view on making money from the Internet is really quite simple and straightforward – and different than most others. You need a simple, step-by-step process for setting your income goals, finding solid, existing products to sell online that will make you the most money, and then properly advertise them on Google and elsewhere across the Internet.

When you do this, it’s important to ensure you’re turning a great profit; e.g., making an 80% gross profit, by having the right “business model” in place.

Once you learn how to do this on a small scale, you can then simply repeat this exact same process, over and over again creating multiple income streams that’ll just keep making you even more money! More often than not, if you’re selling digital goods over the Internet, once you have things established and producing, it just keeps on making you money – a passive income that’s consistent and completely automated!

Here’s an example. You locate and choose a digital product (there are over 11,000 of them to choose from right away at ClickBank). Next, you select who to target and sell this product to on the Internet. There are some simple ways to go about this, ensuring you pick the best products and reach the right customers.

Next, you place simple text advertisements on Google, Yahoo and other search engines, and then some percentage of people who click on your ads will have a need for the product and will buy it. The reason we know they’ll buy is you should be choosing proven products that are addressing people’s “unmet needs” properly, since they’re already selling well today.

Continuing with the example, the goal is simply to get one initial product selling just one to two units per day at first – making you $50 to $100 a day in affiliate commissions (which adds up quickly to $1,500 to $3,000 per month). That’s it! Well, at least that’s a start…

Next, you just repeat this same process several more times until you have as many digital products selling online as you choose. This means you decide how much money you want to make each month so you can continue to have your work at home job.

If you had 10 average-selling products like what we’ve described here, you’d be making $15,000 to $30,000 per month, part-time at home! There are hundreds of people making this kind of money right now – every day, doing what I’ve just described.

Once you have your that first product selling, you just add more products and additional sources of traffic that will enable you to double or triple your daily income levels. This really is straightforward to do and you don’t even need your own website, since you’re selling other people’s products (they host the website).

What we’ve been talking about here is Internet “affiliate marketing”, selling other people’s products over the Web. Learning to leverage the power of the Internet like this will provide you with incredible value you can use for the rest of your life.

It’s a lot easier than you probably think at first. There are a number of really good e-books and courses available that will teach you exactly how to accomplish everything I’ve just described here, so if working at home making great money just part-time sounds intriguing, you should definitely find out more.

Best of luck to you in your life’s endeavors and finding a way to make money and earn your freedom in your own home based job!
